Growing interest in applications of AI in healthcare has led to a similarly elevated interest in fully integrated smart systems in which disparate technologies, such as biometric sensors and conversational agents, are combined to address health problems like medical event detection and response. Here we describe an ongoing project to develop a supportive health technology for stress detection and intervention and discuss a pilot application for one component, the conversational agent.
